Service Dog for Maverick

Julian and Gabrielle's beautiful four year old son has numerous medical challenges including: hearing loss, mobility, celiac disease and ASD.  He was recently diagnosed with a rare illness called Zellweger Syndrome. There is no known cure at this time.

We are raising funds for Maverick to be able to get a trained service dog to help him with mobility, visual/auditory assistance, access, alerting, and companionship.  Maverick has a hard time walking independently, so having the service dog will help him get around safely and gain independence. We know that a service dog will improve Maverick’s quality of life in many ways.

Please thoughtfully consider donating today to help us raise the funds necessary for the Barnes family to get a service dog for Maverick! The waitlist for a service dog can take over a year and a half so hopefully we can raise the funds together soon! 

Even if you can't donate today please send the link to your community of friends, the more people that know the better!
